Dick Lockard has served the Altoona Area School District as a board member for three decades.
During that period of time, I've known him as a friend during my 41 years of service to the school district and eight years as a fellow school board member.
Lockard is an ethical and moral person, always doing what is right for the educational program and development of a comprehensive curriculum to insure Altoona graduates are as good as any in the state of Pennsylvania.
He also monitored the annual budget to insure the students' educational program was first and not taxing the people on a regular basis was second.
Vote to keep Richard "Dick" Lockard on the school board to monitor the future of Altoona Area School District's educational program.
